Beauty - _Beauty_
by: Brian Meloon (4 out of 5)
As I've said in reviews before, industrial really isn't my favorite style of music. However, there is some industrial that I enjoy, and this is some of the better industrial I've heard. It essentially follows the style of Fear Factory, mixing metal with industrial, though more of a middle ground between the two styles. It's at times technoish (e.g. the intro to "Outpatient"), and at times heavy. There's also some pretty strange stuff here too; dissonant and weird sounding sections that really add an extra element to the overall effect. The drum programming is pretty good at times too, and the bass is cranked way up, even beyond the guitars most of the time, which makes for an interesting and unique sound. The vocals are usually shouted, with some being distorted, and fit right into the style of the music. The songs all run together, and the song structures are varied. Unfortunately, the song structures in some cases hinder the song's effect, as in "Outpatient", which gets going full speed, and then slows down again abruptly. Still, this is an excellent effort for a one-man industrial project, and his next offering sounds promising.
